Anthony Cortino lives with his mother in a quiet suburb. His father is dead, and his violent criminal brother is a long way off, in the city, and if Anthony has his way, that's where he will stay. However, Johnny runs into trouble with the police in the city, and when he asks to come home, his mother agrees, despite Anthony's objections. A reign of terror begins for Anthony then, for as long as Johnny is around, Anthony is never safe, and never has been. Written by

In an unusual manifestation of competition, "My Son Johnny" was produced by ABC Productions, but instead of originally airing on ABC as one would expect, it was first shown on CBS. (When Disney purchased ABC in 1995, ABC's in-house shows were made under Disney's Touchstone Television division; Disney's Buena Vista Television, which encompassed Walt Disney Television, ABC, and Touchstone, assumed off-network syndication of "My Son Johnny" when Disney took over ABC. In September 2007, Buena Vista became Disney/ABC Domestic Television, which now syndicates "My Son Johnny," and Touchstone Television reverted - in a sense - into ABC Studios. Disney retained the Touchstone imprint for theatrical films.) See more
